SEA/RC53/13 Rev.1 - Proposed Programme Budget 2002-2003
AbstractA long-standing concern while preparing programme budgets for successive biennia has been (a) to ensure that Member Countries clearly understand the WHO Secretariat’s objectives, and (b) to match these objectives with the plans and aspirations of Member Countries. In this regard, the Strategic Budget for 2002-2003 marks a significant departure from previous biennia, both in its content and in the way it has been prepared. Extensive consultations have taken place between the staff of the regional offices and WHO headquarters in the formulation of WHO’s policy framework and corporate priorities. As a key instrument in advancing the process of reform and change in WHO, the Strategic Budget for 2002-2003 (Part I) has also been developed jointly through consultations between WHO headquarters and all the six regions. The present document, which should be read in conjunction with the WHO Strategic Budget for 2002-2003 (Part I), responds to the need to spell out the regional perspective and the proposed areas for priority action. It outlines, in the light of the overall strategic framework for PB 2002-2003, the issues and challenges facing the South-East Asia Region in the coming biennium, as well as specific priority areas for the countries and the Region, as a whole.
